In a remote valley of Bhutan, the teenager SANGAY lives with her father, a traditional craftsman of wooden phalluses. She isn't happy with her life, opposing her dad and everybody at school. She feels trapped in the middle of the emptiness of the valley and surrounded by people who live by their belief and symbols. Up to the day her father discovers that she is seeing a married man, from the lowest cast of the village: the butcher.
